  1. I'm aware of the smog regulations over here in california, lets say it doesn't pass smog would it just need some engine work? I appreciate all the replies
  2. I appreciate your reply, as far as bumpers I would have taken them off anyways, I like the look without them. My dad is sort-of friends with the seller, he says hi to him whenever they see each other and my parents both like the car. I do like the color, although later down the road I will probably paint it something else, but like I said its a pretty good color for me. Over in San Diego I don't need A/C so its not a deal breaker since I enjoy windows down anyways. This Z has a Manual which is awesome I'm in love with this car but if it has major rust (which it doesn't appear to) it might just be a deal breaker :/. One thing about the 280z I love is that I can keep it going for a very long time and work on it myself as opposed to more impossibly complex cars they make nowadays, where instead of working on it yourself you take it in and its intentionally designed to last 10 years... not to mention the more I work on it the more its value goes up, reliability increases, it starts to get a personality that matches mine etc.. I'm the kind of guy that would hate life in a Minivan or Corolla...
  3. I want some opinions here if that would be cool, I'm 20 (gonna be 21 soon) and I am considering this 1976 Datsun 280z . I have a small job and a lot of time, going to community college with like 2 or 3 classes depending on semester. Currently on the prowl for a new job, something for more money... I know a lot about cars and love them (especially Z's), and my dad loves and knows how to work on cars (owns a 71' charger he built up) and would love to learn more about mechanics work on something with him. Seriously considering auto technician school also if that helps. I have $2,000+ or so saved up and I am earning more as we speak. I plan of using most of that money for a car or two. I'm thinking of getting a 280 Z and something else that's cheap transportation. I always have my parent's cars to use until I move out, and yes I put gas in them... I am drawn to the 280 Z because I had the chance to buy one about two years ago and I didn't because it was in poor condition (but drivable) and salvaged title, also I had only about a $1000... and limited knowledge of the car. I fell in love with the car and told myself I would buy one. (eventually...) I plan to put love into it and money... Maybe its sort of the same thing when women want babies men want cars...haha Would love to hear some feedback before I make a solid decision. Thanks everyone Something Happened today, I found a new 280z down the street and its beautiful. It screams "buy me". Take a look.. 1976 Datsun 280Z/Trade????
  4. Thanks for the feedback everyone I look forward to hearing more... I expect a 30+ year old car to need work and its sort of the point of why I want one haha I love cars that I could learn to work on, spend a lot of time on, give love to, learn about etc. I don't need reliable transportation right now because I do have my parents cars to use if I need. Also I do plan on buying something cheap to drive (think saturn or honda who knows) past 96 for the maintenance ease. Hopefully I get this new job and I can buy it Over here in California I don't expect as much rust as the more rainy bits of the USA but Ill keep on the lookout, seems people say stay away from rust and I can't agree more! Also if I see one that needs a head-gasket should I stay away from it? Thanks
